Why do we love it?

Querciabella Chianti Classico 2017 is a wonderful wine from the magical Tuscany. With every sip, you travel mentally to the beautiful village of Radda and hang out with the locals, drinking wine, eating prosciutto, and gazing at the blossomed vineyards.

Chianti Classico from Querciabella Winery is a unique wine that encompasses both the history and the new era, as the winery is the region's first biodynamic (since 2000). Sebastiano Cossia Castiglioni, the man behind the winery, is obsessed with protecting the land and the environment, as they are the basis for every great wine. So, he made the decision to turn to biodynamic cultivation, while he was following organic farming principles since 1988. The winery's Chianti Classico consists of 100% Sangiovese, from the vineyards of the estate in the best villages of Chianti (Radda, Gaiole, Greve, Panzano). The very low yields per hectare (below 35 hl/ha) give incredible concentration and expressiveness to the wine. Once the fermentation is completed under controlled conditions, it matures in French oak barrels (5% only new, the remaining second and third use) for about 14 months. The wine is constantly being tasted from the barrel until it has reached the perfect spot! Then, it is bottled, and after staying in the bottle for some months, it reaches your glass, rich, velvety, and juicy.

We do not know if you visited Tuscany, but certainly, after this Chianti Classico from Querciabella Winery, it will become your next favorite destination!

CHIANTI CLASSICO 2017 - AGRICOLA QUERCIABELLA

PAIR IT

with a beef casserole, slow-roasted lamb with herbs, fillet mignon with red wine sauce.

Pork chops with tomato jam and crispy leek

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil and 6 extra tablespoons (for leek)
  • 1 fresh onion, sliced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, finely chopped
  • 4 ripe tomatoes finely chopped
  • 2 tablespoons of mirin (or white wine vinegar and 1 tablespoon of sugar)
  • 4 pork chops (about 2 cm thick)
  • salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 leek (white part only) well washed

Preheat the oven to 200 degrees. Heat 1/4 cup olive oil in a pan. Add the onion and the garlic and cook until they become transparent, about 3 minutes.

Add tomatoes and mirin (or vinegar and 1 tablespoon of sugar). Boil while stirring to moderate heat, until the mixture becomes almost dry or about 15 minutes.

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large pan. Season the steaks with salt and pepper. Sauté until they get a nice golden-brown color, about 1.5 minutes on each side. Transfer them to a baking pan and roast them for about 5 minutes in the preheated oven.

Add the remaining 4 tablespoons of olive oil to the pan. Chop the white part of the leek. Add the leeks to the hot olive oil and fry until crisp.
